Asymptomatic – No treatment is necessary if the adhesions are asymptomatic as the adhesions may resolve when estrogen production increases at puberty.

Symptomatic – Labial adhesions should be treated if they are associated with recurrent infections or pain.

Initial treatment of symptomatic labial adhesions with topical medications (eg, estrogen, estradiol (0.01%) cream or betamethasone 0.05% cream) is desirable. It should be applied twice or thrice daily using a fingertip at the point of midline fusion where there is a thin white line.

Frequency of application is decreased once separation starts and is continued for few weeks. Once labia separate, an Emollient is applied 3-5 times daily for several months for a complete healing and to minimize the chances of recurrence.

If medical care does not help, a surgical separation should be considered by a Pediatric Surgeon/Urologist.
